THE END OF LIFE DIRECTIVE IMPLEMENTATION AND IMPLICATIONS

The main purpose of the EU End of Life Vehicle (ELV) Directive is the reduction of waste arising from the disposal of vehicles. The secondary aim is to implement more stringent environmental standards to the ELV sector. The directive may compound the problem of abandoned vehicles. It is possible that not enough of the businesses handling ELVs will meet the required environmental standards. The regulations relating to manufacturers and vehicle dismantlers will not come into effect at the same time. The economic problems faced by dismantlers are considered. The requirements of the directive relevant to the ELV sector relate to permitting, technical standards, recycling and reuse and data collection and standards. These requirements are examined in relation to the results of a study into the state of dismantling in Yorkshire and Humberside, UK. The responsibilities of the manufacturers are reviewed.
